Iris Details: #4 Android Apps Overview

This is a video showing an overview of operating Iris via an Android tablet. Although we always have an RC transmitter in the mix, as a backup, the Android apps provide a very convenient way to maintain a telemetry and control link with the vehicle.

In the weeks ahead, we will be making some in-depth video tutorials on using all these different functions.

Thanks, Muhammad!

We are currently ramping up our media production capabilities, and will be adding many more videos in the following weeks.

What is the difference between the "Andropilot" app and the DroidPlanner app?  Can only one be used with IRIS?

Comment by Alex Hills on September 8, 2013 at 4:34pm

They are very similar apps, just being developed in parallel by two different people.

Thanks Muhammad.

We will be including an OTG cable with the Iris, and selling them individually.

As Alex mentioned: Both of the Android apps are similar, and they both can be used with Iris -- or any APM or Pixhawk, for that matter.

There are two iOS apps in the works as well.

What tablet was that, and will you be offering the transmitters and receivers for videos and other data?

I've basically put my purchase plan on hold until Iris and it's apps come out for users.

I know the DroidPlanner developer has been tinkering with the possibility of video.  Right now you just use standard 3DR radios for telemetry.
